Bad enough when manufacturers put fake vents on things but stick ons are the worst.
I see them on all sorts of stuff around here but that fuel tank might take the cake.
At least there's no "Turbo" badge on it! Those seem to find there way on mid-90's Japanese econoboxes around here.

Shogs -

I am so sorry that you and your team went through that. I am certain it was an ordeal for everyone involved, and i can only imagine what the victim's family is going through right now.

You remain a voice of reason here.

Thanks, and I hope you and your team recover from that experience soon.

Aww, bless him. He's done more to promote the Crown Jewels than the Tower of London ever did.

I love this attitude "gotta ride". I met a guy touring round France on a GSX 1000R trike with nitrous... Knackered from the waist down but still hauling!

Yeah, I think they'll get a waiver on the boots.

But a leather whip hanging from your brake lever, well, that's just rich.
actually the fingerless gloves are pretty cool. I picked up a pair a few weeks ago on a whim - now I can get my wallet out of my pocket and retrieve my credit card so I can buy gas without taking my gloves off. I can get my key out of my pocket. dial my cell phone. send a text message. work the atm machine. pick my nose. put in ear plugs. take a whiz. tickle my lady friend. reset my tripmeters....

It's a Special or a Super. Only 3 holes. Century and Roadmaster were 4-holers........
